There’s just something innately romantic about a farmhouse-inspired barn wedding. From the strung cafe lights to the reclaimed wood. Therefore, a barn wedding has something to appeal to every type of bride. This gorgeous whitewashed barn is a lovely backdrop for a ceremony. Also, for a reception, ​and feels just as New England as it does Deep South. Place a bit of greenery in doorways or windows to add a modern flare.

The Right Way to Have a Barn Wedding

Some may call it a trend, but we think the barn wedding is here to stay. If you’re planning a wedding (or dreaming about it). Therefore, you’ve probably come across a million and a half wedding ideas. And we can bet a good deal of them involved a barn. And it’s no surprise it’s so popular. Hence, barn weddings are that perfect mix of laid-back, rustic and beautiful that so many brides love. If you’re thinking of planning a barn wedding, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite country-inspired ideas.

Save on Flowers

The hallmark of a barn wedding is that less is more. With a rustic, uncluttered look, you can forgo expensive extras like fresh flowers. And let the minimalistic decor scheme really shine. We love nixing elaborate floral centerpieces for Mason jars and baby’s breath. Cheap, easy to find and even easier to arrange, it’s the perfect blend of simplicity and femininity.

Add a Personal Touch

Thanks to Pinterest and the like, the “cookie cutter” wedding has been replaced. Hence, by a sweeping trend of DIY and personalization. A barn offers the perfect blank canvas to experiment. Thus, allowing you to add touches that speak to your own personality and creativity. This easy-to-DIY pendant banner adds a bit of whimsy to a rustic space.

A Sparkler Send-Off Your Photographer Will Love

Take advantage of the outdoors with a gorgeous photo op. Fill a Mason jar with extra-large sparklers. And encourage your photographer to round up the guests at the end of the night for an unforgettable send-off.

Utilize Indoors and Out

Create a romantic ambiance both inside and out with gorgeous string lights and a curtain for separation. Create a lovely reception outside under the stars and set up the DJ. Or try DIY with your own iPod inside the barn when it’s time to get down.

Reclaimed Wood Everywhere

When decorating a barn wedding, draw upon the structure’s character and weave the look throughout the whole space. This rustic reclaimed wood centerpiece from Junebug Weddings is an easy way. Hence, to add a little elegance to a country setting. Try wooden crates or wood slices for more inspiration.

DIY Your Barn Lighting

Edison bulbs are an affordable and trendy way to add a soft glow, and warm up large spaces like barns. You can find Edison bulbs on Amazon – just wrap the cables in twine. And wind them around beams, poles and doorways for romantic lighting you can easily DIY.

Pallets: A Barn Wedding’s Best Friend

(Source: pinterest)

Wood pallets are one of the most popular DIY materials on Pinterest. From headboards to coffee tables, there are endless uses for them — and even more for your barn wedding. We love this rustic event schedule idea in particular. But you can also try using pallets as a ceremony backdrop, a cocktail table or even seating (just add hay).

Drink, Country Style

Not that you need an excuse to draw your guests to the bar. But this upscale barn bar is a great alternative to a traditional drinks table. Though this example is a bit too difficult to DIY, you can always draw upon it for inspiration. Set up a rustic table outside, add some corrugated aluminum, and voilà.

Bring in Vintage Furniture

One of our favorite aspects of a barn wedding is that it works with almost all aesthetics. This beautiful bride-and-groom seat is a vintage dining bench. But you can replicate the idea with nearly all of your seating. Hence, how about a few Victorian chairs for cocktail hour?. Spend the year before your wedding looking for deals on great vintage furniture.

Add Some Wheat

A barn wedding doesn’t have to be overly country. But it’s always fine to incorporate a few rural elements throughout the event. We adore this wheat and lavender boutonniere, reminiscent of cornfields and rolling fields.

Pro’s Guide To Healthier Courtside Snack

Published

on

Get yourself ready. It’s March madness already. Whether you are a die-hard fan or just a regular spectator, you all might find yourself craving for those unhealthy stadium snacks. I know it is hard to resist those cravings. Almost impossible I’d say. But a nutritionist said there are ways to make the unhealthy snacks slightly controllable.

Fill Up First

If you have time before the game, we suggest you to eat first. Load yourself up with protein and fiber. Meals which are rich with these ingredients will keep you checked through out the game. By being full, you won’t over eat the first snack you see.

Hydrate

Drinking alcohol is often part of the experience. If you do so, please be responsible and drink not more than one or two glasses. Wine, light beer, club soda mixed with clear alcohol are all welcome for the experience. Take plenty of ice with them for pacing your intake. The most important thing is, don’t forget to buy a bottle of water before entering the stadium. There are two benefits from this. First, since most stadium snacks are salty, the water can keep the sodium level low. Secondly, drinking water will slow down your alcohol beverage intake.

Snacking With Strategy

Rather than denying yourself a snack, go ahead and choose one. Stick to that snack and order in individual serving to keep your intake checked. When it comes to what snack is the best for your health, nutritionists agreed popcorn and peanut are on top of the pyramid. Popcorn contains a lot of fiber and to make it healthier, get them without butter. Meanwhile peanuts are packed with protein.

Bring Your Own Snack

If you are in doubt about snacks in the stadium, it might be a good option to bring your own. Once you already know that the snack choices available will set off post-game sugar cravings, bring along a small bag of peanut or protein bar.
